To Ilene/other URers, those that like to make sweeping statements and speculate on other people's wickedness, and make veiled threats are also masterminds at equivocation when it comes to explaining themselves, so I wouldn't expect a straight answer anytime soon.

Seriously though, if heaven is the way the OP envisions, wouldn't it be better to take part in the resurrection of the "wicked", I personally would rather eventually be snuffed out, than lose all my memories and/or sense of empathy.
Alison, I am with you on that ....... "the wicked" are generally meant to be "the unbelievers" as in not christians but it seems to be that people do not neatly fit into all these labels and what is in the heart can be at odds to what is in the head ..... you can get an agnostic or atheist who displays more empathy and love for there fellows than a christian.........

To me the scriptures have a lot me depth and spiritual meaning than what you read on the surface of them..... They are a product of the times that they were written in and on the surface relevant to those people.......

She has accused you and others of spreading a false gospel, after all

So I'm presuming that unless you believe and agree with what she says, she believes that yourself and others will be in the resurrection of the wicked.
Indeed ...

My sentiments exactly ...

It is like Mark Twain said ... "go to Heaven for the climate, and to hell for the company".
